    Has anyone had quail hatch that appear to have an air bubble on the side of its neck? Out of 21 that hatched in ou last hatch 3 of them have this and it is really weird. Maybe some kind of blister I just don't know. Please help. Will it go away? Will it get bigger? Will it kill my babies? These are coturnix. This was a mixed hatch, but I think they are some of the goldens that are affected.

    Sorry you haven't gotten any answers. I've seen this before in other species on this board, but I don't remember what causes it or if it is treatable. Hopefully someone will come along and help.

    Did you post in the emergencies forum? It's not 'just' for chickens [​IMG]

    Thank yall for your responses, I tried to get some pictures but they are too small to get a good picture of them. I can only really see it after they tried to drown themselves in their water. Thanks again

    could be drinking a lot. that would be water in the crop and if you picked them up sometime they will dribble lol. esp if they haven't had much to drink for a while. (like water went out)
